Add Your Name – We Need Property Insurance Reform by June 1, 2022

Sign the Petition to the Florida Legislature: Property Insurance Rates Are Out of Control

Property insurance companies have June 1st deadline to meet regulatory obligations with the state of Florida. It is urgent that the legislature acts to shore up this market before then. 

If not, we may be facing more insurers leaving the Florida market, and thousands more Floridians may be stranded without property insurance and forced into more and more expensive plans.

Countdown to Regulatory Deadline








Petition Text:

Florida’s property insurance rates are out of control, hurting all Floridians. As property insurers leave the state and rates double and triple, let’s recognize this for what it is: a crisis. We ask the Florida Legislature treat this crisis with the urgency it deserves, including coming together for a special session to address the property insurance crisis.
